London Boroughs to get more than £80m for walking and cycling safety improvements

Transport for London and London Councils have published a Borough Three Year Report, which demonstrates how boroughs have used Local Implementation Plan funding over three years “to transform local areas, making London’s roads safer and more attractive for people using public transport, walking and cycling.”

The report looking at the years 2019/20, 2020/21, 2021/22 outlines new infrastructure delivered through the funding, including 89 new accessible bus stops, more than 110 schemes to increase bus priority or accessibility and nearly five miles new or improved bus lanes, as well as 30 miles of wider footways and a hundred miles of new or upgraded cycling routes.

They have also introduced 74 new pedestrian crossing, 110,000 on- and off-street cycle parking spaces and training and around 500 school streets, meaning almost 25% of primary schools now have a school street.

TfL will allocate £80.4 million in funding for London’s boroughs in 2024/25 to continue their work making the capital’s roads safer and more attractive for people using public transport, walking and cycling. This is an increase of 16% from 2023/24, when boroughs were allocated £69 million. Outer London boroughs will continue to receive a higher proportion of funding compared to inner London boroughs.
